Snow tires a must, chains….wouldn’t hurt either.

Titus had his first snow experience.

After acquiring our season’s pass to Timberline, Paps backed out of our side sloped parking spot, nose uphill, and we got stuck…no upward movement.  We pulled back into our spot, and then back out, nose downhill and backed up the hill to leave.  Titus needs some chains, and to be parked level when it’s snowing.  But on a good note, we named the van Titus and Titus goes up hills better backwards.  Titus seems appropriate.  We debated Greek names and translations, but we settled on Titus.

There have been just a few small touches to the van since the last post.  Paps rebuilt the water box to the correct size of the new fittings, and built a box around the batteries.  I attempted to make more room for clothing by sliding the bed to the driver’s side wall (originally centered with 4 inches on both sides) to allow room for bins.

At this point, we are trying to get the van “Ready for Bozeman” as Paps calls it.  I don’t have much to update on since we last went climbing at Smith.
